Harry's at Breacker point!

FA Appeal Possible?

After the stunning success of Euro 1996, the domestic game finally got underway for another season! However, it was a day of controversy in the Arsenal vs West Ham fixture, which ended up 2-0 to the home team. With the score at one-nil, Arsenal striker John Hartson was "felled" in a "bodycheck" by West Ham defender Tim Breacker, despite TV evidence seeming to show that Hartson lost his footing, rather than be felled by Breacker's challenge. Even Hartson looked slightly sheepish, as Breacker was dismissed for a straight red card after a "professional foul"

"It's a daft decision" said West Ham manager Harry Redknapp after the game, "We'll certainly be appealing to the FA to get the ban over-turned."

--------

In other news, defending champions Manchester United got the season off to a roaring start with a 3-0 victory away at Wimbledon, with a last minute goal scored from fully 50 yards cored by young starlet David Beckham.

Duponce!

With the crowning of Joseph Dupont as Chief Executive of the French FA (or the Fédération Française de Football, in frog speak.) France has confirmed its position as the epitome of arrogance in Europe. Only in France would a man with such ungrounded swagger and misplaced cocksureness be entrusted with something so vital as the future of that nation's football.

Duponce, as he should be renamed, had the sheer audacity to spout the following arrogant and detestable drivel in a press conference. Duponce, in the most drawling French accent, declared that “The world is split between the have’s and have not’s. France has it. England doesn’t.” and then, after a pause where Mr Duponce gave a smug grin, he proceeded with “I have it, Mr Hardie doesn’t. See where I’m going with this?” How dare this man personally jab at our new Chief Executive? A bit of healthy rivalry is fair enough, but personal attacks of this nature really aren't becoming of a man in such a powerful position. But if Duponce thinks he can scare and bully us Brits, then he has another think coming. The Sun fully expects Hardie to give Duponce a taste of his own medicine by telling him exactly what an arrogant frog he is. Duponce wants a fight, does he? That's where you're going with this, is it Duponce? Well you've picked the wrong enemy and The Sun simply cannot wait for England to trounce the frogs on their own soil in '98. That is, if they're able to stop caressing their own egos for long enough to actually organise the World Cup.

If Duponce's attitude means one thing, it is this – Hardie and his team need to appoint a tough, no-nonsense manager who will be able to stand up to the mind games of Duponce. The Sun isn't yet sure who that man is, but we have faith in the FA's ability to find the right fella to teach Duponce a lesson!

Duponce Lashes Out

Quote:
To the Editor of the Sun,

You are quite wrong in your recent article. You refer to my attempts to ”bully [us] Brits.”

I was under the impression that the FA dealt with the English league and the English national side, not Britain as a whole?

A typing error on your part no doubt but one I expect the people of Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland take offence to nevertheless.

Signed,

Joseph Dupont
Chief Exective of the French Football Federation


The Sun views this letter as the exemplification of Duponce's arrogance and reminds him that the reference to which he speaks, of Englishmen as Brits, is entirely correct because every nation sees Duponce as an arrogant fool, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland too!

The Sun tells the FA, it's not worth it

So, there has been a lot of criticism for the FA over the death of homosexual footballer Justin Fashanu from an extremist clique of gays called OutRage demanding the the Football Association do, errrm... something, after the death of Fashanu. But today The Sun asks, is it really worth it?

Gay footballers are very few and far between in this Country. The gay population is also very small, particularly in the working class areas of our cities. It's a blight of society in those middle-class suburbs of the South, where ponces spend their Daddy's money on Savage Garden CDs rather than footy boots, but really not a widespread problem. And yet, the FA is being criticised for not taking action? The Sun asks, Why should they!

What can the FA actually do about this situation? Invest in some kind of time machine? Because no matter how much the FA do, Mr. Fashanu is no longer of this Earth, and surely that is the most important point of this overblown controversy? Yet OutRage and probably lots of other gay organisations think that the FA should be making football more accessible to queers. Where will this end? Should we have glitter on the kits instead of numbers? Should we bring back those ridiculously tight shorts of the 1980's? How about giving out free Brazillian waxes at football grounds? Julian Clary would surely approve.



So really, the Sun asks the FA to continue with their current policy. There is no crisis over homosexuals in football - the death of Justin Fashanu is simply a tragic consequence of a variety of factors. Perhaps the FA should have been more sympathetic to Mr Fashanu and his family, but we at The Sun are glad that they have not sold the soul of our national game for the loony left to tamper with.
